Hello there,
i try to create a new Part for the SFH 4726S. The actual footprint was not a big problem. But in the Datasheet they recommend a copper area around the footprint which should not be visable. I dont know how i insert these copper areas around the smd Pads. I attached a picture of the recommended footprint.

Right - What Lewis Said.

You have your middle pad with comes with a soldermask -- and then you just apply a copper shape over that middle pad.

When you use it in your design, the copper shape will need to connected to the same net as the pad.

Hi Walter,

You can add copper to a footprint, and you can associate it with the same net as the pad. If you need help with this please email support@pulsonix.com and we can help you further.
